national center for carnival heritage + an old shoebox theater + little towns along the way = lots of photos.

I read 'Water for Elephants' during the summer and your photos remind me of the time it was written, during the depression when US circuses were being bought and sold or disbanded. I've got a Taschen Circus book on my amazon list but it's HUGE so not sure I'll ever justify the cost or the space to store it...
